I’m writing this at my son’s school parking lot as I wait for dismissal time. Everyone here (and the entire
This is ‘interesting’ for me, to say the least. In my six years of living here, this is the first time we’ll be hit by something this bad. We’ve had a lot of snow before but I think it’s never been two feet or as they said on the news, possibly 2 inches of snow per hour. I’m anxious but there’s only so much we can do really.

How cool is that?....two different seasons in less than a day? Nashville, TN

Chicago (or ) close to my heart. And I do hope its people will be kept safe this week as this storm hits us. Stay warm and blessed, everyone. I now have to brave the strong winds outside to go pick up the little one. Bye for now… Illinois
